    I didn't read the whole article. But i am sure net neutrality can only be threaten, but it will always be neutral.
    Here in Serbia law, administration and that stuff is very slow. But few months ago government made a law about spying EVERYONE'S internet traffic. There was a huge mess about it in news, on internet... and a week or so later they withdraw that law. I was like WTF ?!
    ISP's can try and filter your traffic, but people will just go to another ISP, there will be hallways another ISP that do not filter traffic.

    fuck this shit. there's already plenty of big-brother type software parents can use to 'protect' their children on the internet. they should stop trying to ruin it for everyone else.

    You know, the state of Missouri recently passed a "cyber bullying" law.

    Basically that law says that if I call you an asshole via the internet, I can be charged with a felony.

    Well there could be child protection "programs" with a database website rating system.. However these assholes want to regulate the whole region of the internet..

    Wish I could stay more up to date on this shit.

    This is a pipe dream and it will never go through. Implementing these kind of measures will have consequences, both on freedom/liberty and the internet economy.

    Plus, who decides which websites are suitable, and which are not? This system is just begging to be exploited by politicians and corporate lobbyists for their personal gain.

    If parents want to "protect" their children from "harmful" websites, then they should do it themselves. There is software available for that purpose.
    At most, ISPs could include this type of "child protection" software in the CDs they usually send to clients when they purchase an internet connection. People could then choose if they want to have it on their computer or not. That would be acceptable.

    But I think we all know this douchebag only wants to score political brownie points with some voters, being mostly paranoid insecure parents and other people that are scared of their own shadow.

    You're exactly right! I think that parents should do a better job at being parents. I'm a parent of a young son and you better believe that when he is old enough to use the internet, I'll be watching him like a hawk.

    Or is this really for the children and not for other purposes.. Hell I heard on a news channel a few days back that terrorist tactics have increased due to their internet usage..

    No, it really is about government control.

    The internet is a place of freedom and governments, by their nature, hate and seek to restrict freedom.
